If Republicans want to see a Democrat become Mississippi’s next governor, they should vote for Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves in Tuesday’s runoff for the GOP nomination.
The recent Mississippi poultry plant raids that uncovered a bunch of employees who were in the United States illegally may wind up changing workplace hiring procedures. But not in the way most people think.
The runoff for the Republican nomination governor was already bound to be interesting: Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, a leader of the legislative branch; vs. Bill Waller Jr., the former leader of the state’s judicial branch.
If Jim Hood truly believes that Tate Reeves abused his office to try to get an access road built — at taxpayers’ expense — to the gated community where the Republican lieutenant governor lives, then Hood needs to distance himself from investigating the matter.
